Delish Chinese-style omelet- Egg Foo Yong

This is another really yummy recipe. We love going through different foodie magazines and books and making recipes. Most of the time we leave them pretty close to as they make it but it seems we always alter something.

The kids were very happy with this dish! They loved it as did we. Something different to the weekly menu. Try to keep it exciting and the aroma’s in the house flowing.

This entire dish made the house smell wonderful!! We are huge breakfast eatters and thus, this one made us all happy!


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
8 oz o mushrooms (all nicely sliced)
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup beef broth (or chicken works too!)
3 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 medium onion,  thinly sliced
6 oz Canadian bacon, diced up
1 bunch scallions, diced up (we loveee lots)
7 large eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

2- Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in another skillet (YUP- gotta mess up more dishes). Over high heat. Add in the onion and the remaining 1 teaspoon of sugar and cook until tender. Add the bacon and cook 2 minutes.  Then add the scallions and the 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce. Cook for about 1 more mintue. Transfer to a bowl and combine with the beaten eggs.
